Int’l Development Week 2018

International Development Week (IDW) is from February 4 to 10, and the theme for 2018 is “Partners for a better world.” At Canadian Jesuits International we are highlighting the work of a few of our partners who are most definitely making a better world!

Please click on the projects in the sidebar to learn more about our partners’ work. You can also read articles from our archives about their contributions by clicking on the titles below.


International Development Week was introduced in 1991 to educate Canadians about contributions to poverty reduction and international humanitarian assistance in the developing world. This year’s theme encourages all of us to be “partners in building a better, more inclusive, peaceful and prosperous world.” To learn how other NGOs and Global Affairs Canada are marking IDW, visit here.
